English short story ( Arguing with a fool is a waste of time)

“arguing with a fool”

One day the donkey said to the fox, the color of the grass is blue.

The fox replied, no, the color of the grass is green.

In no time the discussion between the two turned into a heated argument and they appeared before the King of the Jungle for judgment.

 The fox said, Sir, you also say that I am the most intelligent animal in the forest.

We all know the color of grass is green.

But the donkey arguing with me saying that the color of the grass is blue.

Your Majesty, tell me the color of the grass is blue or green?

The lion replied, yes, the color of the grass is blue, isn’t it?

Hearing the lion’s reply, the donkey continued to speak, the color of the grass is blue but this stupid fox did not listen to me ever since.

What has been bothering me for so long, now comes to bother you too.

 Punish him, my lord. The lion punished the fox with five years of silence.

The donkey started jumping happily and kept saying, the grass is blue, the grass is blue.

Shocked, the fox accepted the punishment.

But asked the lion, King, why did you punish me when the color of the grass is really green?

The lion said, right, the color of the grass is green.

And punishing you has nothing to do with whether the grass is green or blue.

 Punished you for wasting your time arguing with an ass, an intelligent creature like you and wasting my time by coming to me for such a bad reason.
